Anurag Kashyap discusses about his short film Bebaak; says, “I don’t like how when something bad happens to a woman, we say stuff like ‘ghar ki izzat lutt gayi”

en Bollywood News Anurag Kashyap discusses about his short film Bebaak; says, “I don’t like how when something bad happens to a woman, we say stuff like ‘ghar ki izzat lutt gayi”

Bebaak is a short film starring Sana Pathan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sheeba Chadha, and Vipin Sharma, which will feature at the JioCinema Film Fest.

Critically acclaimed film Bebaak starring Sana Pathan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sheeba Chadha, and Vipin Sharma, will be premiering in the JioCinema Film Fest. The movie is scheduled to release on October 1, and will tell the inspiring story of Fatima, a Muslim girl who hails from a modest Muslim family with three siblings, and harbors dreams of becoming an architect. However, her father's financial constraints threaten to shatter her aspirations. In a desperate move, her father takes her to a conservative Muslim Trust that funds promising students, putting her in a dilemma as she grapples with her beliefs and dreams.

Anurag Kashyap discusses about Bebaak ahead of its premiere; says, "I don't like how when something bad happens to a woman, we say stuff like 'Ghar Ki Izzat Lutt Gyi"

Speaking of his take from the movie, Anurag says, “The creation of this film was very necessary, and the perspective is very important. I have friends in a lot of countries across Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Egypt, Morocco, and a lot more as I enjoy traveling. I’ve seen their problems and struggles and to articulate these issues, is an achievement in itself. Call it anger, perspective, or whatever as you may as it depends on how you see the movie, but only Shazia the director of the film can successfully articulate that issue, I can't do justice to it.”

Discussing societal patriarchy and the suppression of women's empowerment through religious contexts, Anurag expresses his concern, stating, "I don't like how when something bad happens to a woman, we say stuff like 'Ghar Ki Izzat Lutt Gyi,' tying it to her family's honor. Why not treat men the same way? Let's focus on each person's experience and help them stand up for themselves. Back in the day, we hid things, making women seem like they're our property. That's not cool. Male insecurity is a big part of why we have patriarchy. Women are strong, but some guys get scared they'll be too independent. I grew up with my grandmas leading the house – everyone had a role. Male insecurity causes a lot of issues; we make rules because we're afraid someone will take from us. That's messed up. Insecurity is behind many problems, especially the big male insecurity that supports patriarchy and ownership".

Bebaak is short film which strives to inspire and empower more women and will premiere at JioCinema Film Fest on October 1.
